Leanne Patrick

Leanne Patrick, Gender Based Violence Nurse Specialist and Kerys Russell, Upper GI Cancer Advanced Clinical Nurse Specialist were selected earlier this year to take part in a nine-month development programme run by the Queen’s Nursing Institute Scotland (QNIS).

After completing the programme successfully, they were awarded the Queen’s Nurse title along with 23 other community nurses and midwives at a ceremony staged on Friday (24 November) evening at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in Edinburgh.

Nurses are selected by employer nomination and subsequent panel interviews for their clinical expertise and compassionate care.
